Sitting on the city, in the city, and with the city: my new line of monumental seats, in collaboration with the Florentine company Savio Interiors, focuses on sharing and belonging. The CITYNG line is composed of 16 chairs, representing the symbolic monuments of the world. The chair turns into a symbolic object, which encloses the city and its values. The CITYNG project is a celebration of the world: it started from the dream of seeing different realities, cultures and aesthetics as a result of a coexistence of harmonious concepts around a table. CITYNG is a journey between West and East, between tradition and modernity; the chairs are handcrafted in solid wood, but also decorated with a numerical control pantograph: as regards the craftsmanship of the future, I strongly believe it will have to be able to combine the knowledge of the past with the technologies of the present, as well as humanity will have to find a balance between the celebration of national diversity and a necessary intercultural dialogue.
